Robert Swiryn graduated from the University of Hawaii in 1979 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Religion and is currently a practicing chiropractor on Kauai.
In 2010, Robert Swiryn released his new book, The Secret of the Tarot, How the Story of the Cathars was Concealed in the Tarot of Marseilles. The book took over five years to complete, and was the product of a synthesis of Swiryn’s long-time interests in art and religion.
In the thirteenth century, the Cathars, a group of Christian heretics, became the target of the Roman Catholic Church. The pope enlisted the help of the King of France, and together they began a campaign of brutal persecution which started during the Albigensian Crusade and ended in the formation of the Inquisition. The efficiency of those programs led most scholars to believe that the Cathars were all but annihilated. However, evidence points to the survival of some refugees who fled to areas like Lombardy, in Italy, where they were sheltered by more sympathetic religious sects.
In The Secret of the Tarot, Robert Swiryn offers a glimpse into the background of the Cathars and their medieval world, and how it was turned upside down by the political and religious powers of the time. But the unique factor of this thought-provoking book is found in Swiryn’s interpretation of the imagery of the tarot cards within this historical context. In Part II, he describes how the tarot provides a visual account of the personalities, events and spiritual ideals of the Cathar faithful. Each card in turn becomes part of a deeper, hidden message, as the images come to life.

Enrique says he is not a fortune teller... you will not find a hint of mysticism or occult thinking here. Instead, you will experience an artist who uses tarot cards to craft beautiful stories.

Major Tom ~ how we can get along with our Inner Saboteur through tarot. He says, "For most of my life I've been my own worst enemy & I firmly believe this is the result of too much living in my own head. I firmly believe that tarot has helped me to get out of my own way and begin to truly enjoy the here and now."
"For me, the tarot is entirely about getting the information you need to produce the outcomes you desire. The first step to determining your desire is getting to know yourself."
Now in its 10th year, Major Tom has published the limited edition Tarot Lovers' Calendar as a spiral bound, high quality printed showcase of the most talented artists and writers working with tarot in the world today.
He has also created:
1) Major Tom's Tarot, composed entirely of photo collage created using Paint Shop Pro.
2) Major Tom's Tarot of Marseilles is a deck that demonstrates the Marseilles tradition is alive and well, with an edition published by Schiffer Books.
Also check out his monthly Tarot Scopes.
Major Tom's clients span 5 continents. He is now based in the lovely market town of Framlingham, Suffolk, England, UK and is the leading professional tarot card reader in East Anglia.

Carmelo Anthony has been traded away from Denver, and Craig finds himself liking the Nuggets again. To celebrate his new kindled love for his NBA team, he goes over all manner of random topics with Face Ventura and The Whale in Episode 98. The boys discuss breast milk ice cream, proposing at a baseball stadium, and Vampire Hippos just to name a few odd topics covered in this show. This show was the premiere of the "Something to think about" segment, in which we cover a bunch of random topics with pretty much zero structure...perfect segment for the VSR horde. (Oh, and if you see a dead cat, take a picture for Craig's new calendar.) Craig also ticketed a few deserving wankers, including Carmelo Anthony...although not for turning his back on Denver. Craig finished up with a quick discussion of his Oscar picks. Face Ventura seemed rather unpleased that a movie centered around Mickey Ward was up for an Oscar, and snuck in a tiny bit of boxing talk at the wire as a result. Craig did his best to nip that sort of thing in the bud immediately. We finished off with a music recommendation of the song "Rio" by Hey Marseilles.

Join us to meet Enrique Enriquez, taroist and premiere blogger/interviewer, as we learn about the connections between the Marseille tarot and poetry, embodied semantics and the language of the birds.

Enrique Enriquez (born April 23, 1969 in Caracas, Venezuela) is a visual thinker and tarot reader. His interest in the tarot began in his early twenties, while studying Graphic Design at the Instituto de Diseño de la Fundacion Neumann, in Caracas. Between 1987 and 2001 he explored a wide array of expressive media, like painting, drawing, writing, performance art, animation and radio broadcasting, before setting on the tarot as a tool to explore the way images work and the dynamics of meaning-making. In 2000 he moved to New York, where he currently works as a tarot reader.
In 2009 his ‘Gestural Keys to the Tarot’ were published as a prologue for the Jean Dodal tarot, re-edited by Jean-Claude Flornoy. Besides being an active member of the tarot international community, he is currently conducting a series of “Conversations Around and About the Tarot” with several well known authors within the tarot’s world: historians, artist, poets, readers, magicians, publishers, etc.(www.enriqueenriquez.me)The British Society of Mystery Entertainers described his work as one that “challenges many preconceptions about the tarot”.
